I’m in my 60’s and took the leap. Maybe it was easier for me because I’ve never been married but I was in 3 long term relationships that each lasted 10-15 years. I joined Match and put quite a bit of work into it. You have to market yourself–a cute photo, interesting bio and I paid for premium membership on the site for 3 months. I did that to force myself to contact guys and invite them out to coffee. It was a good experience. I met several nice men. I am not an extrovert so it was work for me to put myself out there. What I learned is that online dating is like learning any skill–you have to practice it. Now I am taking a break from dating but will probably try it again.
